Davenport, Iowa (March 28, 2013) – PechaKucha Night builds at the Figge Art Museum this Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in the museum lobby.

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, or hobbies in the PechaKucha 20x20 format. This format allows presenters to show 20 slides for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds in total) to keep presentations concise and fast-paced. The images advance automatically and the presenter talks along to the images.

PechaKucha Night this Thursday will feature eight presenters including Vincent Briley, Assistant Dean of Academic Advising & Testing at Eastern Iowa Community Colleges; Tony Singh, Senior Vice President of The Singh Group at Merrill Lynch; Diane Franken, artsBASICS Co-Project Director at Davenport Community Schools; Ann Love, Director of Museum Studies at Western Illinois University-Quad Cities;  local artists Matt Pulford and Jeff Tady; local artist and financial advisor of The Singh Group at Merril Lynch, Thomas Behne; and Bruce Walters, professor of art at Western Illinois University.

Devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture, the first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public. Now, they are held in over 600 cities around the world by a city organizer. According to Figge Director of Development Raelene Pullen, “Our first night was a great success. We will continue to organize this vent on the last Thursday of each month.”

Museum admission is free on Thursday evenings and this event will include free light appetizers beginning at 5:30 p.m. along with a cash bar. Thursday is the first of many PechaKucha Nights the Figge will be hosting. For more information on future dates, visit www.figgeartmuseum.org.

An Evening with William Elliott Whitmore

Mindframe Theatres, 555 JFK Road, in Dubuque sponsors DubuqueFest's “An Evening with William Ellittot Whitmore.” With a voice that sounds like the reincarnation of an old gospel preacher from the 1920s and a fascination with sin, death, and redemption to match, Iowa Native William Elliott Whitmore is one of the most unique artists to emerge on the Americana scene in years. Whitmore will offer a one-man performance on the Mindframe stage. This concert serves as a fundraiser for our festival. Raffle tickets will be for sale for chances to win a variety of artful prizes. Tees & Prints for sale too! Tickets are $20 at the door and includes 1 free raffle ticket. Tickets on sale April 1. Visit dubuquefest.org for ticket information.

The World's Longest Panoramic Portrait of a Three Day Arts Festival

You're Invited to Pose for the Portrait!

Photographer and artist Tim Olson will use a 1935 vintage studio camera to create a hundred foot long portrait of DubuqueFest. During the festival, Olson will roll his camera along a path that winds through Washington Park and, at intervals of approximately ten minutes in time and ten feet in distance, he will stop and make a single exposure. The 250+ photographs will be stitched together to create a single, highly detailed panoramic portrait of the festival. You're invited to find Tim & his old-timey camera during the fest & pose for the portrait. This project is made possible by funding from the Iowa Arts Council.
